Idris Elba Lands On GQ’s Cover

Well, I no longer think he’s about to win an Oscar, but I’m happy he’s landed a GQ cover. The story says: “Name another actor of his size and physical presence—six feet three inches, 200 pounds, linebacker broad—so singularly gifted at bringing inner life to such a majestic outer frame. ‘He exudes power,’ says Guillermo del Toro. ‘But he doesn’t exude the power of The Man, of the establishment. He doesn’t have the authority that belongs to a group. It’s an authority that belongs exclusively to him.’”
